    Question Using JS with forms

    Is there a way to get only part of an input value?
    For example I have a file input and I need to only get the last part of it.

    For example if they enter:

    C:\Documents and Settings\Mike McDonald\My Documents\My Pictures\708d8b3face5f11b2acd82f5f6bbbd7e5295815.JPG

    can I have the variable set to the thing after the last "\" mark. For instance in the above file place. could I have the variable set to 708d8b3face5f11b2acd82f5f6bbbd7e5295815.JPG

    If so could you provide me with a code or a place to search for a code like this.

    Thank You Very Much!

    You could use the split function to return the last part of the string:
    PHP Code:
    <html>
    <
    head>
    <
    script type="text/javascript">
    function 
    parts()
    {
        var 
    path document.forms[0].path.value;
        var 
    parts path.split("\\");
        var 
    parts.length 1;
        
    alert(parts[i]);

    }
    </script>
    </head>
    <body>
    <form action="" method="">
    <input type="text" name="path"><br>
    <input type="button" name="but" value="Split" onclick="parts();">
    </form>
    </body>
    </html> 
    Good luck;
